City to use QR codes at council meetings
Sunday, January 20, 2013
Jefferson City is moving farther into the electronic age with its introduction of QR, or quick response, codes at the door of City Council meetings.
According to a release, the city will begin posting QR codes at the door to the council chambers at the next council meeting Tuesday. A QR code is a two-dimensional bar code that, when photographed with a mobile tagging app on a smartphone, causes a webpage to download into a user’s phone.
Scanning the posted code will allow users to automatically download an electronic council agenda with interactive links to supporting documents, though paper copies of the agenda still will be available at council meetings.
